I know the threads have been kind of quiet for the past few months, but I was hoping to get a group going here that are due in May so that we can support each other through this next stage.

 

My transfer was on August 17th, so my EDD is May 5th.

Returnable I will join you here. It sucks that the forums have become so quiet. Transfer was August 23rd. I think I will have an ultrasound next week. Beta #3 is tomorrow, it was moved up due to spotting. Based on transfer day I think May 11th sounds like a good day.

Hi! I had my first FET on 9/2. Im in my 2ww and going crazy! My first beta is Monday, but they dont give us any results until after our second beta on Wednesday. Do you all get results after your first beta?

I was out of town for my betas so I had to go through Lifelabs. It took a day for the resukts to be available. Why don't you take a FRER to put your mind at ease? I did one the morning of my first beta as I knew the results would take long and I was at a conference and I didn't want to be stressed out over the unknown.

Yes, Im thinking Ill take a test on the day of my first beta. I was just curious if anyone else had to wait for beta #2 to get results. I know theyre really just looking for that increase in levels. Either way, the 2ww is the rough. Lol.

MrsCann - good luck with the second beta today. My first beta was at 193, so almost a duplicate of yours. Of course the actual value is not that important.

 

Everyone else, how are you guys feeling? Symptoms? Symptom free? I had cramping for most of the time until about Monday and then have been basically symptom free since. It's nerve racking to think about when you have symptoms and when you don't. I think we are just so super sensitive to the whole process. I'm trying to just go with the flow and assume that I continue to be pregnant with a well developing embryo.

Cride- I took a hpt a few days prior to my beta and the day of beta. I am also out of town from my clinic so I went through Lifelabs as well and my results I got online but the next day. Goodluck to you!

Return- Thank you, all went well they called me this morning about my first beta than had to email a new req for today but got it done this morning. I will know tomorrow morning likely with the results. My RE also scheduled me a ultrasound next Wednesday just to make sure its growing in the uterus and not a tube. She said dont worry the doctor likes to check with everyone and not be concerned. Our 1st betas are super close together:)

For symptoms I have been sick a few times already on and off randomly, yesterday I threw up harder than normal and popped a few blood vessels on my face so now I have small red dots all over kind of embarrassing but oh well. Ive also have been feeling a tad light headed but I guess its normal since Ive been anemic prior to getting pregnant so I just have to make sure Im keeping up with my iron supplements, I usually take it 2x daily, 3 if I can tolerate it. Ive had cramping up until my beta and none since just when I do my endometrin.

Sorry for making this so long lol I also havent wrapped my head around that Im pregnant its so surreal

How are you feeling Return and JIC?

Even tho I havent had my first beta yet, Ive been a little crampy. Did you all feel that way after transfer? Plus today is the first day I feel like I might actually be pregnant. I am beyond tired and a bit dizzy and hungry but not much sounds good.

Hey ladies. It seems I am done. There was a sac on ultrasound but to early to see anything. However my beta has nosedived. In 2 days dropped fron 2390 down to 1700. Going back on Wednesday but expecting to miscarry shortly.
